Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 489 • Palace Half Pi Shawl

Palace Scarves

Elizabeth Zimmerman's circular Pi Shawl revolutionized the way knitters connect geometry and knitting. There are countless variations using her simple and elegant construction for knitting a circle, including half circular or half Pi shawls. Edith Murphy added stripes and scallops to her half Pi and worked it up in quick knitting Palace. This shawl is sure to keep you warm and cozy – resting in your lap whilst knitting or when wearing the finished product.
